9:06 pm
department does that all come under national rule. it certainly would be direct monteriano rowing is claiming that it was that this is really not direct because the parliamentarians would still be in place since the government would so really the point there is i can explain that is that the government would impose its own people to be the government and then you would have the elected members and the . oversee that isn't informal government by any means but the point he's making is don't wiping out the fact that he is taking out those who have broken. that's his point on the senate the king the european union whole series of other important bodies hall behind. taking this action it is

9:10 pm
in the middle of worshipers killing him mom and dozens of others workers have already removed the charred carpet and abandoned possessions they say it will take a month before their clean up is complete and the mosque reopens among the mourners or relatives of eight year old mustafa husseini. the president is the father of this country and through this possibility of the father to bring peace in a country or in the family of the president to. protect us from the afghan president ashraf ghani says this is attack and others across afghanistan are crimes against humanity and contrary to islamic values terrorist groups will never succeed in their sinister goals for divisiveness he says and will soon be suppressed and destroyed by the legitimate struggle of the afghan security and defense forces at least two hundred fifty afghans have been killed in attacks nationwide since tuesday the taliban targeted security forces in the east south southwest and north of the taliban on one hand and the islamic state on the other hand what they're

9:12 pm
kirkuk seventy deca has more from appeal. there is a feeling of tension here in erbil people are not sure how this is going to play out certainly the protesters that took to the streets really rich rating their cause of the feeling that they've been stabbed in the back they've been abandoned by the international community by the united states saying that the pressure of the kurdish forces the kurdish soldiers who fought so hard to push eisel back within the last three years or so that was praised by the world and they now feel that everyone has turned their back on them of course the irony of this is that you have two forces now the iraqi forces that were trained and armed by the united states they fought together just a year ago to push i saw a lot of mosul now they're pointing the guns at each other so certainly a real feeling here of the fandom and also an element of humiliation the fact that the had to retreat from these areas that the iraqi army moved into and the fact
9:13 pm
that they had no international support no one actually came out to say that this is not what would be happening so this is something that people are dealing with right now and again these are uncertain times which is why people in erbil are feeling so uncertain uncertain me just seeing the movements on the streets far less people out and about as you would expect. the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is in saudi arabia as part of a new push to try to end the gulf crisis has been for months in saudi arabia the united arab emirates egypt and bahrain suspended all ties with cata after accusing it of supporting terrorism but citizen says he doesn't and to support a breakthrough earlier this week he blamed the saudi vote for being on willing to find a solution party culhane reports. he's back u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has landed in saudi arabia he was here in july then book signing a memorandum of understanding with carter would be enough to end the blockade it
9:14 pm
didn't despite his shuttle diplomacy so now he's coming back trying a new to. tactic for the four block heating countries saudi arabia u.a.e. egypt and bahrain assigning blame them in an interview saying qatar is willing to negotiate and the saudi led coalition is simply refusing to talk because he tried before he tried to try to be nice with everyone but this took him nowhere and produced no results so i think that's probably. the time has come. analysts say there is a renewed hope they might be more willing to engage now has the president for example try to put pressure on the saudis in the u.a.e. to be willing to to to me to solve some of the sanctions and stop that they put on . the fact that the president has come out now and basically decertified the iran deal is that going to make the saudis more willing to work with us they deal with
9:15 pm
the situation with god or us president initially put all the blame for the crisis on cutter but after being pushed by his secretaries of state and defense he now says it's time for all sides to talk if i can help mediate between cutter and in particular the u.a.e. and saudi arabia i would be willing to do so and i think you'd have a deal worked out very quickly his own secretary of state is publicly disagreeing taking the trip well downplaying expectations crisis will end soon but he does during this trip could very well determine if that is true. al-jazeera there is much more still to come on this news hour from london including. i'm malcolm webb in the town of common in the democratic republic of congo where last month thirty nine refugees from burundi were shot by soldiers following a demonstration will be talking to the security forces and the surviving refugees

9:19 pm
here for killing local leaders. these refugees battered by years of fighting years of struggling to survive still strive to achieve a sense of peace through trust will be hard to win however well intentioned the humanitarian efforts here seen em to al-jazeera northern syria. al-jazeera is demanding the release of its journalist mahmoud hussein who's now been in prison in egypt for more than three hundred days he's accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which he and al jazeera strongly deny mode has repeatedly complained of mistreatment during his incarceration he was arrested in december of visiting his family. egyptian security sources say at least fifty five police officers have been killed and six more were wounded in an ambush by an armed group but egypt's government says only sixteen people died when the patrol was attacked the security forces are reported to have been raiding
9:20 pm
a hideout in the western desert the harir oasis when they came under fire from armed fighters the interior ministry says some of the fighters were killed in that shootout no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack or with me now the studio as well i think most of our chairman of the british arab network thanks so much for coming into the studio and perhaps you could start off by telling us a little bit about this area the western desert area oasis yes thank you very much regular first of. condemned the killing of the egyptian conscripts or any egyptian and such circumstance just totally condemned my feelings with the families. the behavior is in eastern province between sue was. cairo roughly his flat area and i don't see it as it is easy to hide and it traces a lot of questions the killing of such
9:21 pm
a large number of people of fifty or fifty five people and such circumstance plus the fact that is sort of lax transparency is only one source about what happened there's no journalists no media allowed in and egypt as it is is a very closed military state and it does make it very difficult to clarify what happened what's behind it the parliament didn't see anything the media have not visited the place there's no really bloody know what's happening even the minister of interior hardly spoken about the what happened and some major. major. event in egypt have fifty young people killed like that and probably on as a fifty one hundred people been injured we know we don't know exactly what happened you know it's a very difficult has and it's
9:22 pm
a get information about this attack oust of egypt the area that it happened in is that an area where armed fighters might have a hideout you say would be very difficult to hideouts in that area is not not an area i've heard of before not an area i've heard of of having attacks in before but it is and you know as the land is flat. i get a culture and i will say it's reasonably stable. i'd be very difficult to mount an attack on that size and the hide and run away there's a lot of questions can be raised to why this large number of soldiers or conscripts was there what intelligence was there where is the military where is helicopters they haven't done anything to protect this people i hear it make me worried you keep happening and particularly happening before any major meeting with. western european leaders. what is the likely that i mean what group is likely to
9:23 pm
have carried out that attack or is it just too difficult to tell at this stage given the lack of information i mean no one's actually claimed responsibility for the attack do you have any thoughts on who might be responsible it's pretty difficult to tell. but certainly there's no information luff for us to be able to trace who could be behind it it certainly is too big a job for two three terrorists or criminals to do it's a big job and someone must have had inside information and i think what happened in egypt putting so many people in prison egypt is under a lot of tension inside the ablation they've got to be released and i think since you've got to really look. probably step aside because the country has been unstable for three years since he came to power and he we have to ask a question what's going to be next good to get your analysis on the situation in
9:24 pm
egypt right now i think mr joining us here in studio thank you thank you. officials in somalia say the number of people killed in last week's bomb attack in morgan dish it has risen to three hundred and fifty eight another two hundred twenty eight people were injured when a truck bomb exploded in a busy area of the somali capital it is the deadliest attack in the country's history fifty six people are still missing officials are accusing the group of being behind the attack but it has yet to confirm or deny any involvement refugees from burundi have told out as they are how their friends were killed by soldiers that a camp in the democratic republic of congo thirty nine people died and dozens were wounded during a protest there last month the congolese army and the refugees blame each other for what happened now where reports now from the town of common you are. esper also sherry minor says bullets broke the bones in her arm when soldiers shot dozens

shooting began the refugees came down the road from this direction they say they met soldiers about where the blue truck is they say the soldiers opened fire without any provocation you can see bullet holes in the wall here they say the machine gun fire went on for several minutes but the security forces tell a different story. captain informer kill him it was there he says the refugees overpowered him and other policeman stole a gun and used it to shoot him in the leg and attack the soldiers who then fired back in self defense one soldier was killed. i have never seen such people are not afraid of bullets one carried a bible and they all kept an advancing. refugees deny they took a gun or attacked but the un says in any case the army should not have used lethal force but the army told us they acted as any army would solve the new. threatening and throwing store north in the host country what country can't or if they were

al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much and put in contribution to a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else would be for us as you know it's very challenging given the particular because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are the people who believe that tell the real story so i'll just mend it is to deliver in-depth journalism we don't feel in favor or against across the globe. again and reminder at the top stories here on the al-jazeera news hour thousands of
9:34 pm
pro independence demonstrators are on the streets of barcelona after spain's prime minister announced moves to impose direct rule over catalonia. fifteen military cadets have been killed in another suicide bombing in the afghan capital kabul the taliban says it carried out the attack. and hundreds of kurdish protesters have gathered outside the united nations office in erbil voicing their anger about the military operation by the iraqi army and shia militia. let's stay now with our top story on catalonia the spanish prime minister has said he wants to use special powers under article one five five to restore legality to the autonomy region following weeks of political deadlock over a referendum on independence there so what exactly is article one five five and how will the government use it what it is in fact just two short paragraphs within the nine hundred seventy eight constitution of spain it's allows madrid to use all
9:35 pm
measures necessary to prevent thomas region from breaking the law it has never been applied before but he says his cabinet is pushing for the suspension of catalans regional government which means its leader. could be removed but it could also take control of catalonia sixteen thousand strong police force the more sauce death squad. the prime minister said he also wants to use article one five five to call an election in catalonia within six months. well joining me now is. euro zone economist at oxford economics thanks so much for being with us on the program things pretty uncertain for the catalans right now as predictable the presidents do you just speak in the next hour or so what exactly is going to say to its people i mean i think at this point is anyone's guess i thing we could see is that now the spanish government has finally went ahead with one five five we might actually see even the qatari government trying to push for
9:36 pm
a not for vote of independence before they are removed from power i mean this is a bit of a guess but i think now the positions have been so entrenched in their in their own both sides that you know there's no real easy way out of this that would please obviously the thousands of protesters who've been out on the streets the ones who want independence for catalonia but it would be largely symbolic wouldn't it declaring independence when you know that the national governments about to basically take over you have any once again it is it will be symbolic if it happens will be symbolic it still be a non affective i mean the situation hasn't really changed in that sense catalonia cannot enforce a unilaterally declare independence and now even less now that the government is about to likely remove the catalan woman from power really it goes for the senate it looks like me the senate will approve the triggering of article one five five but then it's a little bit hazy isn't it's all a bit unclear what would happen next certainly it looks like the national government will effectively take over the running of most of catalonia but what
9:37 pm
about the idea of elections being called because. under the constitution it could be six months before elections according catalonia yes so the senate would pass this law because the popular party has a majority there so that's basically already a given but you're right this this article has never been used before the war thing is very vague and that means that it's not yet clear hold far does the government go with this i mean the idea is that they want to do as little as possible in terms of intervention just to keep the basic functions of government. until they can actually call for regional elections which is i think the ultimate goal in order to at least buy some time and see what happens there if they do send in the national police again in catalonia how provocative would that be for those catalans who are so pro independence must make clear of course not all catalans want to break away from spain many do not they want to stay part of spain but that would be seen as an act of provocation wouldn't sending in the police well i think after what happened in october the first yes and the most radical parts of the brain the pen this
9:38 pm
movement they've been very effective mobilizing people are getting people in the streets so what i think is going to happen now in the short term is again more demonstrations social unrest so they're going to play that part because they are very good at that and they know it's probably their biggest card to try to get international attention and so on. if elections are cool this is a tool clear how the people of catalonia would vote which direction the votes would go and now it's not clear i think the elections as i mentioned i think will be a short term solution in terms of winning time but it doesn't really it's not a game changer because according to polls the split between those for independence and against the parents still really really there a new election probably would not yield a parliament that it's substantially different from the current one so i think it would be a bit of six months from now we have to see again where are we and you know who isn't charge and what kind of positions we take well if similar politicians are returns to the parliament in catalonia does not mean work style might again work
9:39 pm
deadlock that nothing is actually me from the situation we now i find ourselves in indeed i think that's that's why i tried to explain that a new election is not a game changer but maybe if you have new political actors in place and maybe there is a period of the escalation maybe there is a chance for the start of a negotiation i am personally quite a skeptical that in the short term this will happen so i don't think anyone should expect that there is an easy way out of this but perhaps this is basically now i think the only solution that we can find certainly is a complex and uncertain time for the people of catalonia appreciate it thanks for coming in thank you. china is refusing to condemn its crackdown on the rich which the u.n. has called textbook ethnic cleansing the u.n. says five hundred eighty nine thousand. from him are to bangladesh in the past eight weeks they accused me of rape torture and. china which is
